Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announces big plans for our celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary.
Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and his wife Rosalynn will be in Canada in 2017 for Habitat for Humanity’s 34th Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Work Project to help build 150 homes for Canada’s 150th anniversary – Habitat Canada’s biggest build project ever!
Everyone in Canada has the right to a safe, affordable and decent place to live in and yet so many families do not have that. By supporting the Carter Work Project, Canadians can help build a more caring nation through volunteering – where neighbours help neighbours build homes that provide a safe and affordable foundation for a better life.
President Jimmy Carter and his wife Rosalynn will be focusing their efforts in Edmonton, Alberta and Winnipeg, Manitoba but the Carter Work Project will be a country-wide effort, with over 40 communities in every province and territory in Canada helping us reach our goal of building 150 homes.
We at Habitat for Humanity Vancouver Island North are very excited to be one of the participating affiliates! Do you want to be involved in this exciting opportunity? Donate, volunteer, and follow us on Facebook to stay updated on our Carter Work Project news.
